Hi Wild Wild West,

I had a question as I am looking at adding the Torklift StableLoads to my F150 to help with handling/suspension in addition to my air bags. How do these interact with empty/full air bags? Do they compromise our compliment? They've nearly doubled in price the past couple years so it is quite an investment at $310

I need to clarify my ask:

I am running airlifts with remote compressor and adding antisways. Just saw other options out there including the StableLoads and Roadmaster Active Suspension.

I've already invested in the bags, but looking for better control including roll and wheel hop that still occurs with the bags.

This package was not cheap and I've been happy with the lift I get and soft ride emply. So, ultimately I need to compliment my bags

You can also used hockey pucks between the springs and the overload spring. If they are too thick ,just cut them down.Lag bolt thru the overload and they work great. Or you can add timbrins. They are easy to put on too.

Cool concept. Cheaper than the stops they sell online "customized" for my truck.

In the old days we would use hockey pucks for a 2 or 4" body lift on our 4x4s

I personally don't use the StableLoads, I only use airbags in my truck so unfortunately can't comment on whether they would help or hinder if used in addition to the air bags on an F150

Are these stabilizer and airbags things that also apply to 5th wheels?
